Have been on numerous occasions to see plays and drama activities, recently going to watch boxing, is an enormous theatre and it's so beautiful! Great seating arrangement so everyone can see, only downer is that you can't drink alcohol inside theatre

Splendid theatre great for music events, drama or comedy. Not too large so the audience can still be intimate with the performers. Well worth a visit.

The venue itself is very impressive however this is totally overshadowed by the megalomaniac security staff.

A great place to see concerts, every seat in the house has a great view, and very comfortable. Drinks are not allowed into a show though, the big difference between the Waterfront and the Odyssey Arena, so intervals at the bar can be chaos with having to get your drink necked before the show starts again!!

My wife and I attended the Bryan Ferry concert in the Waterfront Hall last Wednesday evening and while we enjoyed the concert very much (it was Bryan Ferry after all ) I would compliment the staff hosting the evening as they were absolutely brilliant - professional, courteous and really made us feel very welcome. Several bars for a no queue... More

I visit events in the Warefront Hall reasonably often. My most recent visit was to the opera. The concert halls are put to many uses which is great for Belfast. The bar on the first floor ' Bar One' has fab views of city and the river Lagan. The drink is reasonably priced ( a mini bottle Sauvignon blanc £4.40)... More
